SADDO CON 2011 PLAYTESTING IN SESSION!

You know when you look at most card or boardgames, there's an icon or set of numbers explaining how many players it's designed for? Most of the time it's 2-4 or 3-5 or whatever. Because they assume you have a group or family to play said game with. Then there are those that indicate 1-4 or 1-5 - with emphasis on "1". They're known as "Solitare" rules or in the UK, the more appropriate, "Billy No Mates".

Well, the other day I sat down and participated in such a venture! Let SADDO-CON 2011 begin! When the lady walked over and asked what I was doing and I replied in truth - the look on her face might as well have been if I were sitting there shirtless watching gay porn with another shirtless dude.

In fairness, it's a Space Hulk (because Space Hulk is super rad) card game and it plays pretty well as a solitare thing. Be fun with people as well I'd imagine. It has a neat feel and is as brutal as regular ol' Space Hulk. Though rolling dice with no one around and getting stoked is pretty fucking sad. Sadder yet was that I lost.

My poor, poor pal. Move back, we'll take care of you. And yes, watching Gay Porn while shirtless would have been more productive.

Why am I remembering watching some gay porn with you and Will when you lived in Ellicott City (or maybe it was Columbia). It was in the first apartment, the one where Homeless Night took place and I drank about an entire bottle of Grey Goose and climbed from your balcony to your neighbor's balcony. Anyway, one night we watched some sort of gay porn where the characters were Batman and Robin. Am I crazy or did that happen?

Genestealers always win.

Where the fuck were you that people could see you wallow in your own shame?

I second the question... Where the fuck were you? You mention "the lady" but give no further details.

And, no you're not crazy Aimee. That did happen, unfortunately.

In my defense, it was a look of shocked horror, not shocked sadness.

I wonder if the Adventures of Throbin and Poker are streamable on the Netflix.

I mean, sadness. Not horror.

I thrive off your shame.

Ooooooh... THAT lady. I am getting fuckin' stupid in my old age. Suddenly, I feel sorry for making fun of Go-go all those times.
